Off The Chart Gold: 13 August 1983Only another few weeks until Steve and Julian return from their extended summer break, but in the meantime we’ve got another Off The Chart Gold looking at 1983! As always we’re bringing you two hours of hits, headlines and hoovering from thirty-nine years ago, including a load of hits you haven’t heard for ages (if ever), three new entries from the album chart, a hit from the Japanese chart, a round-up of the day’s events and the top five singles in full.

  • Which rock megastar had to wait over a decade for his first ever top 40 single?
  • Who was South Africa’s most famous musician from Lancashire?
  • And which ’70s stars had a number one hit completely out of the blue more than three years after their last chart entry?

Tune in and find out!
